Cricut Cartridge Storage

I signed up for facebook (fb) a while ago but never really cared for the layout. It's taken me some time but I'm coming around. I follow a couple of crafty sites and recently, I saw something that made visiting fb worthwhile.
Below are my Cricut cartridges on a shelf in my 'paper crafting room'. As you can see, I have a few! :o) I recently joined the Cricut Cheat Sheet on fb and a lady, Deanna, shared a great space-saver on a post. She got a storage box and was able to store 22 cartridges and all the 'parts' in one box. So I went online and ordered a box for $6.99 (no shipping or tax) from Gander Mountain. Here is a link to the actual product.
So, I was able to go from this...

To this! 22 cartridges in a nice little space.

I have two leftovers so I just sat them on the shelf by themselves for now. I'm sure I'll acquire one or two more cartridges and have to buy box #2. I just can't help myself.... When I find them during the holidays for $15.00/a piece.....it's just too tempting to add to my collection.

I have been organizing and cleaning in my sewing room too. Things were so messy, I couldn't move around or didn't have a clean place to cut fabric! Got my laundry done yesterday and some cleaning done so I hope to get some sewing done today. Hope you had a great weekend!

Wow...what a space saver that box is... looks as if you could put another on top of it!

The box looks great! Our local WalMart has had the cartridges on clearance for $7.50 each. I'd of snatched them up, but I don't have a Cricut!! :)
